Q
None of the land from DC is from virginia though, they took it back in the 1800's the land is 100% from Maryland

Yes that is true. However, just because the land is from Maryland, doesn’t mean that DC should become a part of that state. That’s like saying “well California is land from Mexico, so should it become a part of Mexico. Especially since there are a lot of Mexicans living and working there.” (Although I’m sure some people would like to see California be taken back.) Nonetheless DC is the capital of our country, which halts your argument to begin with (if you are indeed the original poster). 


Q
Do you think D.C should become part of maryland? like the land is from MD and most of the outside workers are from MD.I dont know many people from north virginia that really like DC

Since DC is the nation’s capital it would never dissolve into another state, no matter the fact that parts of the land came from both MD and VA. If anything it would become a state itself, especially since its population is larger than some states. So no I don’t think it should become a part of Maryland. 


DC is named the 2nd snobbiest city in America

Q
whats do you mean by "nice part of DC"

Well it’s in the Tenleytown neighborhood and the NW quadrant of the city. And compared to other parts of city, this is one of the “safer” places to be. You won’t see as much crime happening as you might in certain parts of DC. 


Q
Can you tell me about AUs reputation or what you've seen/heard..

I’ve always heard that it’s a very politically active campus. It’s in a nice part of DC and everyone that I know who goes there likes it for the most part.


Fewer than half of DC’s residents are native born
